Samuel Moody has a B.A. in Spanish and Anthropology from Georgia Southern University, and an M.A. in Spanish from Middlebury College, where he is A.B.D. in the Doctor of Modern Languages program in Spanish and Italian. His doctoral thesis deals with the figurative uses of gastronomic terms (names of foods, ways of preparing them and kitchen utensils) in sixteenth and seventeenth Spanish literary and lexicographical works. His research interests are lexicology, in particular gastronomic terms, the Camino de Santiago, and the relation of food terms to nicknames and place names.
